Descripción

The vPower data field app has been developed for those who are not fortunate enough to own an expensive power meter. Firstly, this is not 100% accurate. As you can imagine, there is a lot of variables at play to calculate power on the pedals accurately. This is my best attempt to take all these variables into consideration and developed the app with the following key features:</p><p></p><p>Version History</p>

Novedades

Added support for more devices and more indoor trainers (Jetblack Z1-Pro, Elite Fluid Elastogel (round unit), Elite Elastogel Force Mag 5 (3/5), Tacx Blue Motion (8/10))

I can't change the tire rolling resistence coefficient. The field expects a long while the value is a decimal. Entering numbers doesn't work, neither does copy/paste.

Bart I just re-installed the application to simulate your issue. After installation I was able to change the value in the settings page on my iOS device. Can you confirm that you have a proper install and what phone you are using?

Just downloaded this yesterday and went for a short indoor spin today. I don’t have a power meter but the spin class I go to does and I have a decent idea of the kind of numbers I’m cranking. I’d say this tracks nicely and is maybe within 10% accuracy. Of course, trainer selection is crucial. I’m using rollers and selected the Peak Performance Omnium as the base and tweaked my bike weight upwards 50% from actual since my rollers have 1 more roller (3) vs the Omnium’s 2. I’ll probably have more to say after a couple more months with this.

Very good data field. Can you please get the Elite Crono Fluid added? I have the following Speed and Virtual Power rating from Elite. Speed(KMH) Power 10,35 20,88 30,190 40,325 50,505

I am getting very low power readings when going uphill (3-10%). I expect 150-180W based on Strava readings, but I am getting 10W or less. It looks like (bike+rider) weight (or grade) are being ignored altogether. I am using an Edge 520 plus (has barometer, not sure it uses it), and I have speed and cadence sensors. Any ideas? Could it be that it does not work if I am using feet/miles/pounds instead of metric units?

great app, it would be perfect if the watt data from the app can generate an estimated IF or can be integrated in garmin connect like for who has a power meter. these data will complete the statistic graphs with a lot of useful data!

Hey Shane, keep up the good job! Excellent app you have developed!!! All the best, Mike

Sometimes data is erratic, and spiky a lot. I did'nt understand the reason, better the developer make a simpler version, calculating using the weight, speed, slope real-time.

Nice app: it let’s me know instantly about my power and stores them in the Garmin Connect that I can analyze later!! It may be not perfect but it solves all my necessities!! Good job!!

I had a lot of expectations, but it looks as if the (default) settings are incorrect. I have peaks of more than 1900W and a average of almost 400W. My FTP is not even 200W, so this is far from realistic. Is there something with the (default) settings that needs to be adjusted to get more realistic values? Because I still hope it will work, I will rate it as "OK", but for now it does not work.

Great app..So..only a question...it's necessary imposted FTP value on device ?(Garmin Edge 520).. Thank you

Great app. i want to know if there is a chance to get the 20m value too.

Best estimated power, is there a way to print on garmin connect best 20 min power??

I thought at least this will be a good "live" estimate, especially going uphill but there must be some serious problems with the maths involved (or how data is provided by garmin). I would have liked the numbers displayed but strumbling around with 300 W on a recovery ride, pretty unrealistic... I have a feeling that aerodynamic drag/rolling resistance is massively overestimated in standard configuration, e.g. going a bit downhill with no preassure on the pedals generated watt numbers around 250 W To summarize: Better display hm/h and the gradient on your garmin to give you a feeling on how hard you are pressing the pedals, or get a powermeter...

there ara some strange peaks on descents https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/2925174226

app doesn't work on climb or anytime that the gradient change...on climb goes to zero on descent calculate too much watt...works better till some months ago...but now unuseful

Warning MTB fans, this app is based on speed, so for guys like me, is not useful, I had a power of 280 watts descending and 15 watts in a steep climbing. No make sense for MTB. Is clear that the programmer did an excellent job for other kind of bikes,Road, Triathlon etc.

I use this with a fixed gear bike and Garmin 520. It seems like the app doesn't recognize the grade of hills: going uphill (low cadence, slower speed) I get pretty low power estimates. Going downhill (sometimes 140+ cadence and 30+ mph) vPower is 450w+. That's the opposite of the power meter readings on my other bike. The app seems pretty accurate on flats and low grades. Any thoughts?

Works perfect. Gives a really good watt estimate on the ride, and all data is available in Garmin Connect afterwards. Great work :-)

Now with the peaks corrected is the best of the bes iq app for estimated power thanks a lot you save me a powermeter!!
